Ex-Beauvoir Teacher Makes FBI's Most Wanted List

WRC

Police are searching for Eric Toth.

A former D.C. private school teacher and camp counselor has been added to the FBI's local most wanted fugitive list.

 
Eric Toth, 26, was indicted in December on the charge of producing child pornography.
 
In early June, Toth, who taught third-graders at Beauvoir Elementary School, was kicked off the campus at the National Cathedral in northwest Washington. On June 12, the school notified parents in a letter that a teacher was found in possession of a school-owned camera with inappropriate pictures of a boy. Sources told News4 that pictures of at least three other boys being touched in inappropriate ways were on a thumb drive.
 
In August, Toth's car was found in a parking garage at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. A note in the car indicated that Toth was contemplating suicide and that his body would be found in a nearby lake, sources said. Investigators said that could have been a ruse.
 
Toth had worked at Beauvoir for three years. Before the end of the 2007-08 school year, he resigned and told school officials he wouldn't be returning this school year.
 
It was common for Toth, formerly of Arlington, Va., to tutor and baby sit Beauvoir students, sources said. At least one of the boys photographed is believed to be a Beauvoir student, sources said.
 

Toth stands 6-foot-3 and 155 pounds with green eyes and brown hair. He may be advertising his services as an online tutor, the FBI said. He's described as dangerous and possibly suicidal.
